Year 5/6 2021 - 2022

Welcome to the Year 5/6 class page. We will update our page regularly with information that you will need so if you're ever unsure, check here.

We look forward to working with you throughout the year to come.

Class Saints

All classes in our school have a class saint. Our class saints in Year 5/6 are:

Mr Coaker - St Patrick

Mrs Hayward - St Anthony

Mr Roberts- St Winifred


Homework is set on Fridays and is due in on the following Wednesday. We will let your children know what pages have been set each week for homework and we will also publish the pages on the school bulletin. The majority of the work set is on SeeSaw. This is an online programme that you can complete homework on. Logins for SeeSaw have already been given to your child. Please keep this information safe as you will need it throughout the school year.


Our PE day is Thursday with all three classes participating with either Mr Stevens or Mr Coaker. 

We are asking that you send your child in on Thursday, already in their PE kit. If your child is doing football please make sure they have a change of shoes and spare socks in case they get wet during the lesson. Your child can obviously change into their boots in school.

Monday Afternoon Rotation

All children will be taking part in a Monday afternoon rotation on a half termly basis where they will get the opportunity to work with all teachers across Key Stage Two. Each teacher will be teaching a different subject area to help ensure we provide a broad and balanced curriculum. When the children are with either Mr Roberts or Mr Coaker they will need to be in their PE kit. They will be notified in advance of when this will happen.

Spring Topics

This term our focus is on the Stone Age to Iron Age. We will be learning about various aspects of the history duing this period and how humans developed during this time In Re, this half term we will be studying various aspects of the Mass and the their significance to us. For science, we will be looking at how plant and animals are identified and classified as well as exploring mirco-organisms before moving on to investigate various aspects of forces. 

Fact Files

We use these fact files in school and will send a copy home to help you and your child understand more about the topics covered during the school year. These contain key dates from the time period studied, vocabulary discovered during learning and some key facts and information about the topic. As well as a History or Geography Fact File we also provide a Science one. Here are the Fact Files for the Spring Term.
